12/21/12: We Made It

Yep, just like we figured: no Apocalypse o' Death, no meteors, no Mysterious Meaningless Alignment of the Planets ... meh.

Like anyone with a brain was actually worried.  :^)


Okay, so it's the winter solstice. Here in Anchorage, it's -6°. Sunrise will be at 10:13am, and sunset at 3:42pm. It's nice to know that as we head into the coldest months of the winter (Jan-Feb), the days will be growing longer in promise of another break-up and eventual summer. And tomorrow we gain twelve seconds of daylight. Party on, dudes!

Could be worse: in Fairbanks, it's -41°, with a forecast high of -29. Okay, so it could be a lot worse.

I've got nothing else, and am anticipating a busy day at work. Later, friends; thanks for stopping by.

According to the event predictions we have two minutes until the end. Now, where did I put my get home bag...oh, never mind.

I was listening to the Oreo's anyway.

That's true, Bob, but we figure it's tomorrow in Australia already, so what's to worry? :^)

Stephen, that bag wouldn't help much, would it? At least the goblins won't get to use it, either.

NFO, that's very true. Shoulda loaded up on those, huh?

PH, LOL!

Sure, because the Mayans - being seers - knew in advance about modern time zones. Darn smart, those Mayans!

Heh.

Them's short days right there!

Rev. Paul said...

threecollie, that's true. And remember we're in the south of mainland Alaska. The days are a lot shorter, farther north.
